My mom was back in Norway so she started touring us within the area. Yes, nauna kami dumating sa nanay ko. Hehehe! So for the first two days, we just stayed in the house and we waited for our tour guide which is my mom.
I did not plan anything for this summer trip, I just let my mom decides where we are going since she lives in Norway for about 28 years so she knows the place. On our third day, after eating our breakfast off we went to Bruholmen Friluftsomrade or Bruholmen in short.
She lives in the county so she is lucky that this place is just a few minutes walk from her home. The place is good for walking, running, relaxing or sometimes if the weather is nice you can also have a picnic here with your family. You can see farm, pine trees and fjord.

After our morning walk, we took a bath and off we went to Brekstad for errands and grocery. My son was surprised because he learned that my mom can really drive a car. When we told him that Wowa drives a car in Norway, he doesn’t believe immediately because my mom is not driving whenever she visits the Philippines. To see is to believe. Hehehe!
Life here in Brekstad is very simple, you can go to different places in just a few minutes because there is no traffic. Workplace, banks, supermarket and many more are within the area.
Malls are not that big but I was surprised when I saw the malls here because it is now big compared to the malls that I’ve seen before. We bought overall clothes for my son since we will be going to Røros for our Easter Staycation. Since it Spring time, we had a hard time looking for thick overall, so even my son doesn't like the color, we bought it. :)
Same in Japan, no bagger so you have to pack your own groceries.
Lunch with Family + Cemetery
It’s my aunt’s second death anniversary so my mom prepared simple lunch for the family and off we went to the cemetery.
Cemetery here in Norway is beside the church.
Since the weather is nice we took advantage of it and we went straight to Austrått Fort. The fort was constructed by the German Wehrmacht to protect the Trondheimsfjord during World War II. I will create a separate post for this. Day 3 was a long day for us,
